You left your mark


you fed me your softness on a spoon
a treasure whose color I had never tasted
coated my skin with the silk of your lips, tongue
skin on skin on
skin my ribs and break my


I stole your exhale for my inhale
and now I am breathing you

your head to the side, your eyes on mine
is it possible we both knew?

permission to pull you into me into us into this/granted/thank god

we are flaming, glowing, purple and hot, stretching unbreakable, breathing unspeakable
you've landed on of every corner of my inside
your mouth my mouth sworn silence to the outside
you feel like warm honey inside of my body
you have left
your mark
on me.
